to the killing of the great ambassador like ambassador chris stevens. >> look, libya is an important example. after the tragedy of september 11th, you saw tens and thousands of libyans marching in the street in honor of chris stevens. they valued his offer in engaging in the world and democracy, particularly for young democracy is more than just going to the ballot box. that's the very first requirement. we have to set up a simple structure, a court system. >> how does the american administration get the kind of information that chris and others are asking for in relation to a tragedy like this when the government is basically not formed. it's formulating before our very eyes? >> we have to help it. we have to set up structures. we have to help them set up an intelligence gathering system. there's a whole structure of civil society. >> and don't you think, though, if i may be and we were not literally enough in describing the conditions inside a place like benghazi. it's because we weren't clear enough in terms of the problems that occurred in the nation that is uprising, that is literally r
take. steven, thanks for joining us. >> it is great to be here, thank you. sandra: so i guess i would first ask you why are gas prices falling by so much when oil is really still around $90 a barrel? >> well, the quick answer is the fact that they had risen by so much in the month of september. we're now at a time of the year where retailers across the country can sell a winter grade gasoline. this is a cheaper gasoline to manufacture and therefore there was a price differential between the summer grade and winter grade which is what we're now consuming by about 20 cents. now what happened back at the end of the september, beginning of this month is that we had a number about of refinery outages, a number of pipeline outages. so we saw a shortage in gasoline. so again, in september, prices typically begin to fall because we make this transition into the winter grade. now that fall in price was pushed down the road because of these refinery disruptions. so in fact we had about a 20 cent rise in price we normally would not have seen this time of the year. so that price, plus the normal

confirm state department personnel including ambassador christopher stevens raised concerns about the shortage of security in beeghazi months before the september 11th terrorist attack. ambassador stevens himself wrote about security threats in june, august and the very day that he was murdered. meanwhile, military sources telling fox news that the terrorist attack may have been part of a broader campaign to drive a growing american presence out of eastern libya. yet the administration continues to refuse to admit what any fact at all and threat assessments ignored, requests for security there were ignored, and the reality on the ground resulted in the murder of four americans in libya. and as much as the president mmght now want us to believe that he declared the murders in benghazi to be a terrorist attack just the day after they occurred, the public record -- as we have repeatedly reported and demonstrated -- is contrary tois statement. joining us now for a critical look at the president's, well, changing positions on the september 11th attacks and the liberal media's inability
stevens and three other americans were killed at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, mr. romney rushed out a statement in which he accused the president of, quote, sympathizing with those who waged the attack. of course that was blatantly political. republicans cooked up a dishonest talking point, claiming officials created a coverup on the attack by initially leaking the libya attack to protests over an anti muslim video. >> i don't think that they should have sent their u.n. ambassador out five days later to say that this was from a spontaneous mob reacting to a youtube video. >> i think you need to ask yourself, why didn't we know five days later when the ambassador to the united nations. >> then why send susan rice out saying that this was a spoon tan yous reaction, not reacting to a youtube video? >> now we know the truth is, obama administration officials were repeating what the cia experts were telling them.

from chris stevens was his concern about security at the consulate. i don't expect the president to know when 16 people are moved in or out or something like that. but i certainly expect him to know in his daily intelligence brief that things were deteriorating in benghazi to a terrible degree. and then, of course, when it happened, we saw all this business of spontaneous demonstrations, which anyone with any knowledge knew -- by the way, the cia station chief in benghazi's first message back was that this was a terrorist attack and we all knew and they knew that there was an al qaeda-affiliated organization there. this is really an unacceptable screw-up and obviously the president should have known better. >> let's talk about the debate tonight because you're unique in this regard. you've debated both mitt romney when he was seeking the republican nomination, you won. you debated the president when you were the republican nominee. he won that. i'm going to play a couple of clips of you debating both of these individuals four years ago. >> my hero is a guy named tedly roosevelt.
stevens, the u.s. ambassador, he said, well, the circumstances there were less than optimal. you better believe that's going to come up. >> he was repeating a question from an interview that he had. the last debate romney tried to bring this up andy screwed up the fax and he had to be corrected by candy crowley right there in the debate. the administration's story hag changed as the facts have changed so that's why the story has been different, no question. >> jack, i'm curious, and i think a lot of people will be, this whole campaign seems to be focused now on what would obama do four years from now as opposed to what he's done in the past. i think the same goes for mitt romney. what would mitt romney do in the next four years on the foreign policy front that would sort of right some of these wrongs that you see. >> i think first of all, you wouldn't drop the ball. the bottom line is romney wouldn't drop the ball. obama has dropped the ball in so many places. look at iran. the one place the u.s. should have gotten -- wade chance to have a genuine nationalist revolution in iran. we cou

(laughs) well, i'm--i'm flattered. you--you flatter me, but, uh, i can't take credit for that. moss didn't have to run. i would have brought him in. the plan did require moss to put his own head in the noose. small gamble jane had to make to keep everyone's hands clean. moss fired his gun. so you all say. a
understand, this is not libyans, this is not islam. we respect ambassador stevens. i personally worked with him as a u.s. envoy. he was very much loved and respected in libya. but the question remains, why the violence in libya? and of course, we saw it in tunisia and other countries. i bring up the issue of traumatized transition nations. we have to work with these groups and address the issue of identity. on the ground, this is one of the biggest issues civil society is coming together with. in most cases, there is an assumption, in order to receive funding or beat it accepted by western nations, you have to distance herself from religion. the exception has been in libya where you have seen some groups stepped out. in particular, there is a network of some of the most respected people in libya who have been very active in terms of issuing statements. even after the revolution, in 2011, the network issued a statement to promote international women's rights. so here we have a country in the midst of a revolution for freedom and they took a step back to talk about women's rights, we res

chris stevens. we got some very shocking and upsetting reports in terms of what he was saying on the day that he died, about the situation on the ground. i want to show our viewers what some of those quotes were, from chris stevens. that just surfaced late friday friday afternoon. on september 11th. he said there are growing problems with security. this is a growing frustration, he says. and he says the forces on the ground were two weak to keep the country secure. look at this about a month prior to september 11th. look very closely at the phrases that chris stevens uses to describe other violent acts on ground near the embassy. he says the individual incidents have been organized. the security vacuum that a diverse group of independent actors are exploiting for their own purposes. he talks about organization and he talks about vie ends are and very significant and specific intent in these writings. chairman rogers. >> absolutely and, you know, somebody said is this, clearly it is a failure to secure that consulate and that ambassador. by the way, this wasn't barack obama's ambassador.
